sunday love.


Did you notice I changed my background back after only a little while trying something new?

Current (and what I always come back to):

Confession: Messing around with my layout is one of my favorite blogging things ever.

When I first started blogging, I loved this blue spirals one.


But after awhile I found it too busy and elementary. So I tried this one:


Too bright!

This one below I liked but something wasn't quite right about it.


This other one was cute but too "dear diary" with the polka dots somehow...


Too leafy...


So the current one seems to work the best for me--the best of very limited pickings!--and I don't like when bloggers change their layout too much so I'm holding off on the design template for awhile, hahaha. When it comes to visuals and presentation, I am SO anal. I worked as the Art Director at my undergrad's paper for a couple years and when it came time for me to leave, the Editor In Chief wrote about me in the letter from the editor, "our art director whose organization skills rival that of Mr. Dewey Decimal himself, sets for me a constant example of what it means to be scrupulous." Oh man, was I scrupulous. READ: anal.

In other news, last week went really well which gives me hope for the rest of the month: I exercised on most days, went to my eating support group (which I haven't done for some time and is always so helpful for me), and really paid attention to my hunger cues. HAPPY, happy. I hope everyone is well! I know I haven't made myself so available to stop by to cheer you on and I want to change that because it means so much to me to have support, to know that someone understands. Okay, enough PDA.

I've decided to start weighing in and make weekly goals again! For now, I will share my goals for this week:

- Gym five days
- Food logging every day <---so important
- 2 support group meetings
- Finish my story!!!!

Last week I was slugging along feeling so uninspired. I was/still am working on a story but it took me so long to create material and just to generally feel like I was producing anything meaningful. I'm hoping this week is better. Love, me. HAVE A HAPPY WEEK <3

Food logging is a biggie! I'll admit yesterday wasn't a banner day food-wise for me, but I logged it all and because I logged it, I have an accurate picture that yes, Amanda, you had a LOVERLY day eating exactly what you wanted, and the rest of the week you need to make sure it was, indeed, just ONE day.

I actually had to wait until today to log a couple of items. I just couldn't stand to yesterday, LOL.

I'm glad last week went well for you -- here's to another good week!

I actually liked the background you had before you changed back to this one, this one is good too :p.

This week has been fairly good to me also! Something about working out again helps you get back to it :D

See you tomorrow :D!

An eating support group is a great idea. I think I need to find one in my area. I never thought about that.
